    That looks about as fun as playing the games they slap on DVD splash screens. What a novel idea to build a whole console around that concept.

    Anyone else notice that all the hands are feminine? I wonder if the controller vibrates.

    Are those controllers for the purple thing on the first row, third from the left? If they are, I'm getting a set for my wife.

    Re: Worst Controller Ever!!

    hum tilt it to move? good feature as long as you can disable it... what if you need to get up and move while your playing? your player might go crazy!

    Think how fun hack'n'slash games would be, just using the attatchable thumbstick, whilst swining that controller around like a maniac! You'd be unstoppable!

    (IE the controller is meant to act as a joystick, steering wheel, sword, club etc.)

    Re: Worst Controller Ever!!

    Have you read up on what they are trying to do with it?? I agree on first glance its a little odd, and looks minimalistic in a way, not to mention a SEPERATE attachment for your analog stick. However, there is not much known right now, but the theory is they are having their throwback game service, so you can play old school nintendo games on the revolution. You flip that controller on its side, and you have your original two-button nintendo controller. They supposedly have some kind of motion detection in the controller, that is "supposedly" going to be a completely new and innovative way of controlling games... of course, no one will really know until you get your hands on one and use it.

    Just a summary of what it is supposedly supposed to allow...
    Two small sensors placed near the TV and a chip inside the controller track its position and orientation, allowing the player to manipulate the action on screen by physically moving the controller itself. For example, you could slash an in-game sword by actually swinging the controller from side to side, turn a race car just by twisting your wrist, or aim your gun in a shooter by pointing the controller where you want to fire.

    It could be "revolutional" or it could just end up being a weird novelty that nintendo fanboys could hark on for ages... Point is, can't go by just simple looks...

    Have you heard the "Revolution" is now officially called the "Wii" pronounced "we".
